Report: Liverpool tracking Atletico Nacional youngster Marlos Moreno

The young forward has been starring for Atletico Nacional in Columbia.

Liverpool are tracking Atletico Nacional youngster Marlos Moreno, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

The Reds are expected to be busy this summer, with manager Jurgen Klopp looking to mould the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers to his needs.

He has already secured the signing of Joel Matip from Schalke, while youngster Marko Grujic was signed in January and then sent out on loan to Red Star Belgrade.

And it seems he is not the only young starlet that the Reds have targeted, with them also tracking Moreno’s performances in Colombia according to A Bola.

The forward shot to prominence last season as he played a key role in his side’s title winning campaign.

He also recently shone in the Copa Libertadores, scoring a goal and setting up the other in his side’s 2-0 win over Huracan.

Those displays have not gone unnoticed, and Liverpool could face a fight for his signature with Portuguese giants Porto also interested in his signature.

They will have to move quickly though if they are serious in their interest, with Brazilian side Santos also being an interested party.
